Prt>f. James Joseph Sylvester, one of
the greatest mathematicians of the age,
died in Loudon ou Tuesday of last week,
Dr. Sylvester once held a professorship
in the University of Virginia for part of
a year. When Johns Hopkins, Ameri
ca's greatast university, was opened in
1876, Dr. Sylvester was called to the
chair of mathematics, which position
he filled for seven years. Prof. Sylves
ter was an absent-minded man lo a su
perlative degree. One day while ou his
way to the University he came to a cross
street where sewers were dug up mak
ing it impossible at tbe time for pedes
trians to cross. Instead of going a
square farther down and crossing he
went home and «lid not go to the Uni
versity that day. On another occasion
he went to Europe. Upon reaching
New York it occurred to him he had left
a valuable manuscript iu Europe. With
out thinking to look in his pocket or
baggage, or use the cable or mail, he
immediately re-embarked across the At
lantic. The manuscript was in bis coat
pocket. He was a warm personal
friend of Prof. Pierce, tbe Harvard
mathematician A R i a l l jil ,lr>r< *- ««n^ioL
nas fTlis to say of a visit Tie once made
to Cambridge :
"Once Sylvester was stopping at a ho
tel iu Boston, and spent most of his time
with Pierce in Cambridge. After a high
symposium the last optnibus had gone,
and as Sylvester could never have found
his way home, Pierce walked the three
miles with him. But as they reached
the hotel, both brains were so interested
that Sylvester turned to walk a few
steps. The result was that they walked
all the way out to Cambridge again, and
then again into Boston. We cannot say
how many trips they made in all, but
finally the flow of soul was checke«! by
Pierce refusing point blank to allow
Sylvester to return with him."
The following resolutions, which we
continue to endorse, were passed by the
Jefferson County Democratic Kxccutive
Committee a at meeting last week :
Be it resolved, that whereas, the Gov
ernor has issued his writ of election for
the 10th Senatorial District of Missis
sippi, for the election of one Senator to
fill the unexpired term of J. M. Taylor,
"resigned," for the 27th day of March,
A. D„ 1897 ;
Ami whereas, it has been heretofore
resolved by the Democratic party of
Claiborne county aud the Democratic
party of Jefferson county, through their
authorized channels, that tbe candidate
for Senator for this Senatorial District,
should alternate between the two coun
ties ; •
And whereas, by tbe terms of said a
greetnent, the candidate for thia Sena
torial term, of rightbelongs to Claiborne
county ;
Now, therefore, be it resolved, that it
is the will of the Democratic party of
Jefferson county, as here expressed, that
it adhere to said agreement and concede
to Claiborne county the candidate to fill
said unexpired term ;
Be it further resolved, that it is the
sense of this committee, that at' all pri
maries for the selection of Senatorial
and Floatorial candidates, to represent
this district in the Legislature of said
State, that the agreement to alternate
be adhered to ; and that it is the further
sense of the committee, that the names
of the several candidates submitte«l at
said primaries, be voted for by the elect
ors of each county.
Resolved further, that the Secretary
be required'to furnish to the Chairman
of the Executive Committee of Claiborne
county, a copy of these resolutions, and
further that the Fayette Chronicle be
requested to publish the same.

If there was a single citizen opposed
to waterworks and electric lights among
the sixty who assembled in the court
house Tuesday night he did not indicate
his presence, though invited to do so.
The meeting was called to order by
Mayor Colson, aud Hon. J. McC. Martin,
attorney for the Board of Aldermen, was
called Upon for a speech. After slating
that the assessable property of Port Gib
son was now #698,011, including both
personal and realty, be gave the follow
iug figures :

Over all expenses.
Of course >2;;,COO, at 6 per cent, wou'd
require an interest of #1500 per year, but
Mr. Martin stated that, as counsel /or
the Board and in anticipation of an ear
ly nice ling of the legislature, he hal
written to the Governor asking that he
recommend to the legislature that bonds,
issued for corporation and internal im
provements, be exempt from taxation.
In which case he said the bonds would
float at 5 per cent, and that he had evtn
been informed that the bank would take
#*«65 95
4 pvr cent,
Continuing, Mr. Martiu said that tor
the past fifteen years the annual increase
of property values in Port Gil sou had
been #15,000. Without taking into con
sideration the rapidity which values
would be enhanced by waterworks and
electric lights, in twenty years, the time
bends, if issued, would run, assessable
propetty in Port Gibson would be #t,
000,000. The tax on this at 6 mills
would be #6000, making an income from
taxation in excess of the present one of
#1442. The speaker stated—ami bis
statements were emphasized by Mr. Son
who followed—that it was anticipated
the railroad would take at least #500
worth of water and perhaps electric
lights ; that of the two or three humlmi
houses iu town, at least a hundred would
take either water or lights, or both ; that
the churches would take lights; that
the Board of Supervisors would doubt
less do the same for the court house. It
was conservative to state that fully #2,
000 revenue would come from the two
a.«ijpmak e l
tre wefina
plants within a year after they began to
be opera
Mr. _
stion a practical one
state that he used in his ovu home six
dollars' worth of coal-oil per rat "tb
wh'ch, including other expenses at
tached to lamps, would foot up to over
#90 per year. He said be could light
his house, eight lights per year, for #60.
He based bis statement ou the assurance
given him by the mayor of Water Val
ley—who dinetl with him a few days
ago—where there are electric lights and
waterworks anti which are proving
sources of good incomes, even on a #70,
000 bond basis.
Mr. Son was called for and gave some
telling figures on insurance. He said
Fort Gibson was now a fourth class
town. To ranke it a third class towu
would require a water supply aud a vol
uuteer hose company, with regulation
hose, etc., which we would have if we
had waterworks. He said that the rate
of insurance on a brick building, with
tin roof, in a third class town was one
per cent, in a fourth class town one and
a half per cent—a difference of 50 per
cent. On a brick building with shingle
roof the rate in a third class town was"
one and a quarter per cent, and in a
fourth class town one and three quarters
per cent—a «lifference of 40 per cent.
On wooden buildings in a third class
towu the rate was two and a half per
cent, and three per cent in a fourth class
town—a difference of 20 per cent. These
were the rates of the South-eastern Tar
iff Association and so authentic. He
said it was conservative to estimate that
Port Gibson annually pai«l in fire insur
ance premiums anywhere from #10,000
to #20,000 ; and that if we were made a
third class town by having waterworks,
at least #2000 wonld be annually saved
in fire insurance alone.
Mayor Colson, agent at this point for
tbe Standard Oil Co., stated that he an
nually sold over #4000 worth of coal-oil
The Rkveillr man said that if he
owned property here and had not confi
dence in the town's future, he would
sell the property aud invest his money
in a town in which he did have confi
dence. And if he owned no property
here and did not believe in the town's
future strong enough to favor water
works, he would have no hope of ever
accumulating anything in it and so
would hie himself hence.
Mr. M. G. Cabn stated that he bad
written to the South-eastern Tariff As
sociation concerning insurance rates and
that he had received reply that its rep
resentative would be here in a few days
to look over the field and give full par
The last to speak was alderman Rich
ardson who made a strong plea for elec
tric lights and waterworks, and the de
velopment, progress aud prosperity they
would surely eucourage. •
The meeting was enthusiastic aud full
of snap, and at (he next election we
would not be surprised to see the vote
stronger even for present-day progress
than it was last December.
The County Needs Better Roads.
The press of the state is just aow agit
ai"« lb*question of good roads: it
cannot be agitated too much. Some of
the roads of the county are in poor
dition, we are told,
sonal knowledge most of our roads
indifferently worked. We do not lodge
the blame against overseers ; for in most
cases they are doing as well us their
predecessors did and in some cases bet
ter. We are not even prepared to say
the fault is with the Hoard of Supervis
ors : for the present board has done as
good a part (perhaps better) by the
roads as former Hoards have done. But
We know from per
that there aie at present hundreds and
hundreds of yards of ditching needed
the roadsides in the county, ruts and
holes almost without number that need
special draining and attention and have
needed it for years, every citizen of the
county who travels our roads can testify.
There are places, too, which need
widening. At a point about seven miles
from town, on the Rodney road, at a
sharp turn on the top of a hill, is a good
illustration of this. There
■ are many
places where for several hundreds yards
two vehicles could not pass each other.
Such places might cause serious in
convenience. It is not easy for a loaded
wagon to back itself a couple of hund
red yards at such places. Why should
the same basin be allowed to remain in
the middle of a road from year's end to
year's end, until a kind Providence
sends a drought to dry up the water in
it ? or the same mud hole have to be
plunged through from year to year? We
saw last summer ruts in the road between
Hermanville and Cleveland big enough
and deep enough to bury the Board of
Supervisors in. There are places in the
road between Murray's Lane and Her
manville not much better, between
Fort Gibson and Jeffreysville ditto, with
the Rocky Spring's, Westside and Rus^
sum roads but little better. Work done
as late as August renders travel the fol
lowing winter, usually, worse than if it
had not been done at all.
No matter how busy overseers and
hands may be, the roads should be
worked before the last of June, for their
condition means thousands of dollars to
the county, saved or lost.
And let us say right here, that so long
as the narrow tire wagon, is allowed to
flourish in Claiborne county as it now
docs, just so long will the roads of the
county continue to be cut up. Let us
have a revolution in the condition of
our roads and get them somewhere near
the excellence of our costly bridges
which now seem out of place iu the poor
roads they bridge. The county convicts,
under a competent road commissioner,
could not be better employed than on
the roads.
